The ninth annual series of lectures on timely subjects to the laity by prominent leaders are now made permanent and available to a larger circle of readers by this publication of the New York Academy of Medicine.
After a foreword by Dr. Arthur F. Chace, the president of the Academy, and an introduction by Dr. Harold R. Mixwell, chairman of the committee on medical information, the six lectures follow.
The subjects of the lectures are as follows : "Morale and Propaganda," Dr. Edward A. Strecker; "Food and Civilization," Dr. Charles G. King; "The Past, Present and Future of Chemotherapy," Dr. Colin M. McLeod; "Medicine and the Changing World," Dr. Reginald Fitz ; "The Effects of Science upon Human Beings," Sir Gerald Campbell, and "Wars and Epidemics," Lieut. Col. Thomas T. Mackie.
This is an admirable collection of topics, both for their timeliness and for the excellent selection of the subject matter.
